@Whatamidoing-WMF: are you proposing the Reply and New Discussion Tools be turned on by default for all users?

If so, that sounds good...I am just wanting to be sure.

Change 672510 had a related patch set uploaded (by Bartosz Dziewoński; owner: Bartosz Dziewoński):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Enable DiscussionTools' tools for everyone on officewiki

@matmarex: can you make it so the following will be true after tomorrow's deployment?

  • Reply Tool: available by default, for everyone, as an opt-out setting
  • New Discussion Tool: available as an opt-in Beta Feature for everyone.
    • Note: this is a change from how this task was originally written and what I had commented previously. The reason for this change: while the New Discussion Tool is still actively being developed and tested, I'd like for it to remain deployed in a consistent way across projects. Making the New Discusison Tool available for everyone, by default, will happen in this newly-created task: T277506.

@Whatamidoing-WMF: do you have a link to an office wiki wikitext talk page @Ryasmeen can use for testing?
